Crimson Tide Fans Expertly Troll Lane Kiffin
"Get your popcorn ready."
Lane Kiffin's last words before taking on Alabama in a jam-packed Bryant-Denny Stadium.
Safe to say the popcorn was, indeed, ready.
Following the dismantling of his heralded offense, Kiffin took some time to reflect on his pregame statements, and even received some "support" from Crimson Tide faithful. In a tweet shared Thursday morning following the loss, Kiffin thanked Alabama fans for their generous gifts of popcorn that had apparently been delivered to the Ole Miss facility this week.
In the post from Kiffin, he makes sure to reiterate what he made clear in his postgame comments Saturday, telling fans to direct their gifts to the Rebel offensive coordinator Jeff Lebby, rather than himself next time.
The Rebels, despite averaging over 600 yards per game heading into Tuscaloosa, had no answer for the speed and aggression Alabama played with, giving up two sacks and seven tackles for loss and finishing with less than 300 yards of offense.
Though the Rebs did manage to hang 21 points by the time the clock hit zeroes, it was clear from the start they were simply outmatched. Kiffin's team looked lost most of the matchup, struggling to find first downs early and failing to convert on three-of-five fourth down attempts.
Alabama moves into Kyle Field this weekend to take on the Texas A&M Aggies in a game that projected to be a battle of the SEC's top dogs early in the year, but has since lost its' luster. Jimbo Fisher, despite leading a team that has struggled mightily against inferior competition this season, made some questionable comments this week, providing bulletin board material for an Alabama team in no need of any extra motivation.
Following another likely domination from the Crimson Tide, will the trolling of opposing coaches continue for Alabama fans? I, for one, surely hope so.
